    A New Hampshire organization is asking sports fans to help wounded service members and veterans.

    In 2008, Dot Sheehan launched Operation Hat Trick after tragedy struck the University of New Hampshire community. It was then that two alumni - Navy SEALs Nate Hardy and Mike Koch - were killed in action whiile fighting overseas.

    The goal with Operation Hat Trick is to raise funds in support of veterans to help them get past the trauma of the battlefield so they can focus on life at home with their families. They sell hats, gear and other products to fund organizations that help veterans. Operation Hat Trick has raised almost $800,000 so far, according to the website.

    Monies raised have supported other organizations like the Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund, George W. Bush Foundation - Military Services Initiative, Semper Fi Fund and many others.
